Third-Order Relativistic Many-Body Calculations of Energies and Lifetimes of Levels Along the Silver Isoelectronic Sequence
U I. Safronova, I Savukov, M S. Safronova, W R. Johnson
Energies of 5lj (l = s, p, d, f, g) and 4fj states in neutral Ag and Ag-like ions with nuclear charges Z = 48 - 100 are calculated using relativistic many-body perturbation theory. Reduced matrix elements, oscillator strengths, transition rates and lifetimes are calculated for the 17 possible 5lj C 5l j and 4fj C 5lj electric-dipole transitions. Third-order corrections to energies and dipole matrix elements are included for neutral Ag and for ions with Z 60. Second-order corrections are included for Z > 60. Comparisons are made with available experimental data for transition energies and lifetimes. Correlation energies and transition rates are shown graphically as functions of nuclear charge Z for selected cases. These calculations provide a theoretical benchmark for comparison with experiment and theory.
